Reply To: In your opinion, why is it important for Christians to stand up for religious freedom for people of all faiths, and not just our own?

Hi Dylan, I appreciate how your response focuses on tolerance and respecting the God bestowed dignity inherent to each person. It also made me reflect that–when it comes to something as fundamental as what one believes, there is simply no way to truly enter the mind of another and coerce someone to believe what they do not. The whole idea and practice of forcible coercion thus does violence by requiring people to live in such a way that is contrary to their deepest beliefs, and is an insult to human dignity.
